    Therapeutic action and progress in analysis: A child struggles with death, life, and change

    "Therapeutic action and progress in analysis: A child struggles with death, life, and change" with Charles Parks, Ph.D.

    A young boy, faced with the loss of multiple caretakers, worked to acknowledge and understand overwhelming feelings so that he could resume emotional development. Initially his concerns were expressed through disturbances in bodily functions (encopresis) and disavowal. Analytic progress allowed a series of psychic transformations which increased his capacity to elaborate these concerns in fantasy and in play. Examination of these transformations is used to discuss core questions in child analysis including the nature of therapeutic action in work with children, the meaning and role of insight in this work, and the multiple ways a child uses the relationship with the analyst to progress in the treatment.
